Brings back the classic flyers we've all known and love! This mod gives vanilla flyer species back all of their pre-nerf'd stats. Yes, that means they can level speed again.

This mod brings back the original species' stats for the following vanilla dinos (including tames from before the nerf!):
•Wyverns (currently some bug reports concerning them and their eggs)

This mod gives vanilla flyers back their original stats by altering their files, therefore it is incompatible with any other mod which also alters vanilla flyers or their eggs, as one will overwrite the other. This mod cannot affect flyers from other mods, only their mod authors can affect them. Other than mods which alter these files, Classic Flyers is full stackable. It also adds cleanly and removes cleanly, without losing any of your flyers. Please see the FAQ as well as the list of Compatible/Incompatible Mods for more details.

This mod also adds several new quality-of-life features to these fliers including ground attacks, taunt "attacks", backwards walking, and allows wyverns to wear saddle skins. It also adds a new Emote: Pet!, as well as a special Wyvern Stone which wyverns can use for a small armor boost. Please see the Features page for more details.

@Nargacuga Thanks! I'll have to have a look.

The worst troll ever for someone poking fun at something they had a hand in messing up was when George Lucas went on Stephen Colbert's show wearing a "Han Shot First" tee-shirt. I wanted to leap into the screen and strangle him with it!

Damn Yanks have a weird, masochist, and dumb sense of humor... is in their ARK PS4 Twitter. PS4 is waiting for the fuck up, I mean the patch.

After update the quetzal continue without spaw, another thing I noticed on my server is little spawn of dunkle, and none of tuso, only has in the caves, but I do not know if it has something to do with mod, I am using tabula rasa, and Godzillark also on this new server, the rest of the mods I used before
